Anthropology is the science that explores the origins, physical development, cultural development (language, politics), biological characteristics, sociology, and beliefs (religion and philosophy) of a culture. By the 23rd century the field expanded to include the field of astral anthropology. (TOS episode: "The Galileo Seven") Pavel Chekov (whose Russian accent made him pronounce this word as "enthropology") studied this discipline at Volgograd. (TOS novel: Uhura's Song)

One who studies the subject is generally known as an anthropologist. During the 23rd century, Starfleet vessels included an A&A officer, who specialized in archeology, anthropology, and ancient civilizations. (TOS episode: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

A three people anthropology team, including the Doctors Palmer, Barron, and Mary Warren observed and studied the proto-Vulcan humanoid society on Mintaka III in 2366. (TNG episode: "Who Watches the Watchers?")

Anthropology is a general course taught at Starfleet Academy. (TNG episode: "The Game")

In the illusion for the USS Voyager crew created by the telepathic pitcher plant, in 2375, Chakotay was offered a part-time professorship of anthropology at Starfleet Academy. (VOY episode: "Bliss")
